    I have only been playing with it for a few days, but I'm so far very impressed by Vector Designer. Even more so that it has been added to the MacHeist bundle.

    Hi,

    I've been using VectorDesigner since MacHeist bundle or MacUpdate promo (can't remember).
    This app is a fast, user friendly vector designing program that I've really grown fond of. It is lighter than Illustrator.
    I only had problems exporting a 1000 dpi jgp file on A0 format, but that was due to memory allocation limitations in OS X (according to VectorDesigner developer).
    If you have questions that are not covered in the manual, the developer usually responds within 1-2 days, which I think is really fast!
    Is worth the full $ 70 ! But I got it at a reduced price.

    A nice feature is the texture or image fill of an object: you can search flickr for texturfes, numbers, colours etc. to fill an object.
    Object handling is clear and modifying objects is very easy.

    Lineform is different. I didn't like it much untill it got an update (used it today). The nice feature here is the artistic effects (e.g. stroke). $ 80 is a bit much for te simple interface, but today there's a promo: http://www.mupromo.com/ :cool:

    So, it all comes down to what you need...

    In my opinion, VectorDesigner can do everything one needs, for a nice price.
    LineForm is only starting to become a good design program, but is somewhat limited and costs $ 10 more.

    Greetz,
